Renata Jakowleff is a Finnish glass artist who works at the crossroads of artisanship and arts. She is renowned for her experimental, groundbreaking techniques and her ability to challenge her process continually. Jakowleff sees glass as a material with infinite visual possibilities and a complex range of relationships with light. This is why she aims to approach only a few selected aspects of the material at once.
Depending on the technique, Shirm works either at Glass Studio Hytti on Suomenlinna island or at her workshop in Herttoniemi in Helsinki. Mass-produced objects and artwork are made in  Kiikoinen with glassblower Antti Torstensson. Jakowleff’s work can be seen in exhibitions, competitions and fairs devoted to glass, crafts and contemporary art around the world.

”When working, I often see myself not as a creator, but rather as a director or even assistant to the flowing glass. I follow and document the formative tendencies of glass and refine them to art objects.”
